We have been supporting this great Project that has started in Bandon through our SICAP programme and will continue to in 2019.

The project aims to spread to all towns to help put an end to Period Poverty.
We have had loads of comments like “Is it really needed in a town like this ?”
The answer is 100% yes !

So many girls are struggling with this poverty everyday.

Together we can make a difference.

Please give the page a like and support the project by donating sanitary products wherever you see a red box.

Fantastic news for KinsaleFUNDING #DELIVERED FOR KINSALE

I can confirm that €2.1 million has been confirmed for Kinsale for the renovation of the James O’Neill building into a new three storey library, with the ground floor consisting of meeting rooms and a multi-functional events space. While the second and third floors will be used as the main library hub and reading room.

This new library in Kinsale will be a source of huge support for locals and #community groups alike, particularly those groups who provide a great service and support to older people and mental health in the community.
